chief of staff for bill clinton john podesta, republican strategist mike murphy, and nbc news chief foreign affairs correspondent andrea mitchell. >>> announcer: from nbc news in washington, the world's longest-running television program, this is "meet the press" with david gregory. >>> good sunday morning. with the president's national security team under fire over the petraeus resignation and the benghazi attacks, the president arrived on the world stage this morning for a summit in east asia, and he's got new worries on his mind about the prospect of a war in the middle east as israel and palestinian militants get closer to the brink this weekend. israel expanding its air assault against hamas and palestinian militants continuing to fire rockets into civilian areas of southern israel. that's where i want to begin this morning. i've got nbc's chief foreign affairs correspondent andrea mitchell and "new york times" columnist tom friedman. who better to have to discuss this. tom, as the two sides get closer to the brink, based on your experience and reporting, where is this going? >
crystal said this weekend does not hurt the economy. bill clinton did it. we had six of the best years we've had in the last 60. >> it sounds like there's a bit of a yawn, a gap, between what crystal said on sunday and what rich trunka appeared to say or wanted to say yesterday outside of the white house. is it clear to you that labor and the left and moveon are being more rigid than some of the leading conservative thinkers? >> sure. and that's up to the president to manage that. if he gets the increase in rates or something very close to what he's asking for and gets substantial elimination of corporate loopholes and some individuals like romney plan, then we've got to go back to our base and say, yes, we've got to cut entitlements too because it's got to be part of a deal that has spending cuts at a significant level above the 1 trillion we've already done and revenue. look, unless we do 4 trillion to 5 trillion, we're not doing anything in my judgment that's particularly meaningful. >> walk me through the optics of what we'll see today. grover norquist last night said he thought ceos
'm going to finish. the i'm going to finish. under bill clinton we raised taxes on rich people. saw the biggest economic boom in american history. under george bush we lowered taxes on rich people go into economic ruin. >> this is problem with people with no connection. >> i'm going to i'm going to finish i'm going to finish. so there is not, based on our own experience a direct connection between raising rates and on wealthy people and economy going, going down. in fact the opposite happened. and so you can keep saying it doesn't make it true. rick: go ahead, pete. >> simon you have no experience in the private sector. never run a is business. that is problem when you have policy wonks. >> i run a business, 16 years. nice try, pete. >> solution for america. small businesses are answer here. president has a great opportunity to lead. >> i've been running a small business for 16 years. pete. rick: not everything was decided last tuesday. not everything was settled. we'll continue the conversation. simon and pete, we'll have you back again soon. >> thank you. >> sure. jenna: put your
ramp up the attack. these are live pictures that you are looking at. is it possible for bill clinton to step in? >> steve: who changed the wheat white talking points of libya. taking terror out of the picture. the top inteleadmitted that something doesn't smell right here >> brian: they have no idea what you are wearing. hurricane damaged homes are so damaged that the city may not get a chance to tell the homeowners before plowing through. nice. "fox and friends", starts right now. ♪ ♪ "fox and friends". >> steve: welcome to studio e. it is monday before thanksgiving. alyson is in for gretchen. you have a new hair cut? >> no, a new style. >> steve: brian and i find a picture in 17 magazine and take it to the person. >> brian: and you are storting the bieber as i can see this morning. they are so talented they can do anything. >> brian: i look at cap. that's what i perfect. did i mention there is war in the middle east? israel and gaza. >> they are on the brink. we are looking live at the israeli/gaza border. it is now day sixth of the israeli crisis. they are waiting for a word o
, but the republicans have substantial power because of the rules of the senate. the democratic president. as bill clinton would say, it's arithmetic. nothing is going to get done unless we find a way to work together. and i'll tell you, the public has just had it. well, you know, the approval rating of congress is in single digits. it's pretty awful. and it's all about, in my view, the inability to simply sit down and solve some of these problems. >> senator, quick question, brian sullivan from cnbc here. would you support a fiscal cliff resolution on taxes that did not involve an elevation of the top-end rate? in other words, 35 to 39.6, would you support a tax increase but only as boehner would like to do through the reductions or deductions, or are you fixed to that rate? >> well, i think we're fixed too much on this issue because it's only a small piece. even if you do the increase on the people above $250,000, it's a long way from solving the full problem. i'm a simpson-bowles guy myself in the sense that i think there's got to be an across-the-board settlement. so i think what you're really
with this impression of former president bill clinton. >> i want to thank bono for stepping away from the microphone, i knew he couldn't rhyme, but i'm so glad he can fall back on adding and subtracting. it might be the one thing all of us can agree on. >> the voice is spot on. bono was speaking at clinton's alma mater georgetown university saying clinton is more of a rock star than he'll ever be. let's go back out to al with a check of your weather. >> that is a darn good imitation. bono, who knew. tell us about this shoe box. >> this is actually operation shoe box. well, this week is collection week and we're going to need all of your guys' help. >> we'll put something on our website. one of our camera guys was just working on this, weren't you, tommy? >> they all get sent out to kids all around the country, all around the world, really, and they get christmas gifts and the knowledge of church and what makes life a real gift. >> you guys are focusing on hurricane sandy too, right? we really appreciate that. let's check your weather. maybe i should have tommy hogan do the weather too. news channel 7,
to 39.6% which is what it was during the clinton administration. so bill kristol says, do that, make sure that most americans don't get any tax increase come january 1st. there will be plenty of republicans who will oppose any tax rate because it goes against their commitment not to raise tax rates, a equipment that governor norquist by signing those pledges, as you well know, ashleigh. my gut tells me there will be maneuver ra built between the president and john boehner. the president wants to make sure that rich people pay a little more in taxes. boehner says he's open to that but not by raising the so-called tax rate. he's opened to that by eliminating tax loopholes and exemptions and generating tax revenue by an improved economy if the gdp goes up. people will be making more money, presumably, that's the theory. there's some maneuverability. i suspect the pressure is so great that they will get some kind of a deal. it may not be a permanent deal but maybe enough to kick the ball down the road and study major tax reform over the next year. >> and so the congressional budget offic
